A chapter 7 is not a "reorganization", a Chapter 13 and Chapter 11 for businesses are "reorganizations".

If you file for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy you can set up a payment plan which must include the principal loan on your home and if you can afford it, you can probably keep your home. If you cannot make the payments, it might be better to let the home go and file under Chapter 7 if you fall under the means test.

Contact a local attorney to talk over the details in depth

Chapter 7 is not a reorganization, it's a liquidation, not by any means the same thing.

You need to speak to an attorney if your case is complicated, and even if it isn't. Are you current on your mortgage payments? That is the key factor, I think though.
